Geometric Connections

Catherine Ulitsky
Pelham, MA, USA



At first glance, I thought these were drawings of geometric shapes onto photographs. Then I read the titles. 


The black dots are European Starlings in flight (as a flock).
Catherine has painted connections between the birds to show a faceted geometric shape.


So now look at them again with their titles.
